US711/AWE711 Divert over UK?

Was routing ZRH-PHL. Looks like it's heading for LPL or MAN? Can anyone enlighten me?

It will be something quite mundane for sure. Is it really that important to you? Slow day?

Gosh this is so exciting, lets pray the crew manage to get it down in one piece, or if the worse comes to the worse they can manage to miss any orphanages /convents /sunday schools in the area

Only posted because it was pretty much flying overhead for the entire hold time! Back enroute now.

As a newbie to the PPRuNe site I find it amazing that someone with an interest in aviation becomes mocked for letting other "spotters" know about incidents (no matter how small) and damn them for posting on the spectators balcony. I have even noted what you would only call anger at someone`s speeling or grammar. Does anyone else get fed up when all you want to read is posts concerning aviation but you come across sometimes a full page of prrunners giving an English lesson.

I imagine it would have flown "overhead" somewhere or the other if it was holding.

Don't worry, if you stay around you'll get used to Walter's posts, which are all in a similar vein.
